Family Hubs provide a range of services for babies, children, young people and their families, such as stay and play sessions, health visiting and midwifery appointments, parenting programmes and information sessions on topics such as healthy eating, managing your money and looking after your mental health.
Family Hubs are buildings located within communities across the Dorset Council area. We are also developing an online Family Hub, which will allow families to access information and help from any place at any time.
Services providedLots of different services make up a Family Hub. They provide a wide range of help and support.
Using a Family Hub
Family Hubs are for all families living in Dorset Council area. They provide information and services for families with children from conception to age 18. This is up to age 25 for children and young people with SEND.
We all need information or support from time to time, but sometimes it can be difficult to know where to go or who to ask.
Family Hubs bring together workers from Dorset Council, Health Services, and Voluntary and Community Organisations in one place. This helps to make sure you get the right support when you need it.
